"There are many in a new generation of South Carolinians and of Southerners in general who say by word or deed that they know the time has come to lay aside those particular values inherited from the past that are hateful or have lost their usefulness... Hate cannot be allowed to prevail. Love must surpass it'. The Author, Dr. J. David Gillespie.
